, but still slow, improvement, the white house and the romney campaign offered different assessments. a late boost in consumer spending was a major factor in the economic news from the commerce department. gross domestic oduct-- the broadest gauge of the country's enomic health-- grew at a 2% rate from july through september, slightly better than the 1.8% economists had predicted, and an improvement over the 1.3% growth in the previous quarter. another positive sign today-- a survey from the university of michigan shows consumer confidence this month reached its highest level since september 2007, three months before the recession began. but the gdp growth is still considered by economists to be too weak to bring a quick up-tick in jobs. and othe ump in ames, iowa, today, mitt romney seized on the that aspect of the new report. >> today, we received the latest round of discouraging economic news. last quarter, our economy grew at just 2%. after the stimulus was passed, the white house promised it would be growing at 4.3%, over twice as fast. slow economic growth means slow job growth and dec

days to go. the debates are over but the campaign is picking up steam. president obama and mitt romney wasted no time today getting back out on the mpai trail. with election day now only two weeks away, the candidates are devoting every waking minute to revving up the base and courting any remaining undecided voters in a handful of critical swing states. for mr. obama this morning, that meant the campaign rally before an enthusiastic crowd in delray beach, florida, not far from the the site of last night's face-off. >> you guys really are fired up. ifill: picking up where he left off last night he fold voters at governor romney is not a reliable choice. >> we're accustomed to seeing politicians change their positions from like four years ago. we are not accustomed to seeing politicians change their position from four days ago. i mean,... and we joke about romnesia but you know what? this is is important. this is about trust. there is no more serious issue in a presidential campaign than trust. >> ifill: doubling down on that argument vice president joe biden amplified the democrats' me
irrelevant. governor romney has changed his position on just about everything throughout his entire career. and that, i believe, bedevils the fact checkers who will say, "well, his official position is this, but then he did that. so it's hard to kw, but you can't really say, this is true because also that's true." if that's the context, if that's what's going on, then i'm not sure what can be learned at all about governor romney because the chances of him saying something different, doing something different once the election comes, based on his behavior during this campaign and while he's been running for president, are extremely high. >> let me give you an example of what people have learned. people know that governor romney is going to increase spending for the military. and that's a coequential difference. they know that president obama is going to increase taxes, where, where governor romney is not if he's elected president. that's an important issue distinction. coming into the last debate, the annenberg survey showed that the public thought that governor romney was more likely to ta

, that is something that they intended to happen. >> gop candidate mitt romney distanced himself from the remark. but despite objections from women's rights groups romney didn't pull this campaign ad. >> i hope you will join me in supporting richard murdoch. this, of course, after freshman house republican j walsh of illinois insisted there no suchhings an abortion to protect a woman's life or health because of "advances in science and technology.". and representative todd akin's infamous remark about women's bodies shutting down to prevent pregnancy in cases of so-called "legitimate rape." >> so doctor, are these extreme remarks by republicans distancing themselves from these remarks, are they what are keeping abortion front and center? >> they are actions. they remind women of people trying to redefine rain rape. the words are bad enough. the actions are worse. >> i disagree, bonnie. i think it's to the less advantaged to keep this conversation going. most of them are concerned about the state of the economy and jobs and that's what they are going to the whole thinking about. what we know isb
end the war. governor romney said that was a tragic miake. we ould have-- he ended it. governor romney said that was a tragic mistake. we should have left 30,000 troops there. with regard to afghanistan he said he will end the war in 2014. governor romney said we should not set a date, number one. and number two, with regard to 2014, it depends. when it came to osama bin laden, the president, the first day in office, i was sitting with him in the oval office. he called in the cia and signed an order saying my highest priority is to get bin laden. prior to the election, prior to the being swornn governor rney wassked a question about how he would proceed. he said i wouldn't move heaven and earth to get bin laden. he didn't understand it was about more than getting a murderer off the battlefield but about restoring america's heart and letting terrorists around the world know if you do harm to america, we will track you to the gates of hell if need be. and lastly, the president of the united states has lead with a steady hand and clear vision. governor romney, the opposite. the last thing

( cheers and applause ) >> woodruff: and president obama issued a new fund-raising appeal saying this race is tied. a new abc news/"washington post" poll of likely voters found the president led 49% to 46%. but that was within the margin of error. and the poll found romney now leads in the level of enthusiasm among his supporters. the president hoped to reverse that trend as he hunkered down in williams burg, virginia, to prepare. on sunday his top advisor david axle rod told fox ne
